Moalboal is another great town in Southern west side of Cebu for tourist. Moalboal is famous for white sand beaches and great places to relax. Moalboal is said to be the center of diving spots in Cebu as it houses beautiful marine life. Many international divers visits Moalboal periodically. It is 89 kilometers away from the city and is about 3hour drive. You may likely passes Carcar rotonda when you go there.

The Origin of the name of “Moalboal”

A legend told that a Spaniard was walking around the place and found himself close to the hot springs. He asked one of the locals what place was called. The local thought he was asking about the spring and replied “Bocal-Bocal”, which translates to bubbling water. Unfortunately, the Spaniard was hard-of-hearing and heard “Moalboal” and so the name was originated from.
